Despite being one of Marvel’s most insanely popular characters, Wolverine has struggled a bit on the big screen. Sure, Hugh Jackman defied expectations when he first signed on to play the Canadian mutant. After, in the comics, the guy is short and stocky whereas Jackman is over six feet tall. He fit the ensemble in the X-Men trilogy of films quite nicely, playing off James Marsden’s Cyclops as both vied for Jean Grey’s love only to both watch her die in X-Men: Last Stand.
If there was any character ready for a spinoff film, it was Wolverine but X-Men Origins; Wolverine was a bit of a messy disappointment, overstuffed with other mutants and telling his poignant backstory. Still, the character was tantalizing for 20th Century Fox so they went back to the drawing board – and the comics – for inspiration offering up this summer’s The Wolverine, »

Last month, we reported that Hugh Jackman is developing a follow-up to The Wolverine with director James Mangold. While development is still ongoing, the actor revealed he isn't quite sure he wants to return as Logan.
"I don't know whether or not I will do this next movie. I am really proud of this movie and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That's exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be [for me to star in it] and if it doesn't reach those, I won't be doing it."
When asked if there was a screenplay in place, the actor said there is no writer attached.
"No there is not but Jim Mangold and I were literally on the phone last night talking about ideas but there is no script and »

The Wolverine - 20th Century Fox - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: James Mangold Cast: Hugh Jackman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee. Full cast + crew It's a safe bet that The Wolverine will be better remembered than its box office would indicate. It only made $133 million in the U.S., which put it far behind the bigger superhero movies of the year (Iron Man 3, Man of Steel and Thor: The Dark World), and you'd think that would mine the film is a stinker, but that's just not the case. The reality is that fans probably felt they had Wolverine fatigue, and assumed this one probably wasn't any better than Wolvie's last solo film. It is, though. It's much, much...

In case you hadn’t noticed, there was another Wolverine film out this summer. Hugh Jackman took his cigar-smoking, brow-furrowing, claw-snikt-ing anti-hero to Japan in what was his sixth outing as Logan.
The last solo outing for the mutton-chopped one was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a film that was bad enough for me to turn off halfway through and seemingly nixed any future ‘Origins’ spin offs, most prominently the mooted Magneto movie. Still, audience affection for the Canadian crime fighter, as well as an ever-game Jackman prompted the production of this outing, with Walk the Line director James Mangold at the helm.

Back in September, we broke the news that The Wolverine was planning on showing Logan's iconic 1975 yellow and black costume at the very end of this superhero adventure. Today, we have the alternate ending featured on the 4 disc Blu-ray Unleashed Extended Edition, 2 disc Blu-ray and DVD, which shows us how this iconic outfit came into play. In addition, we have the X-Men: Days of Future Past first look featurette that will be included on The Wolverine's Blu-ray and DVD sets, which features director Bryan Singer giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the sets being used in the sequel.
The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013 and stars Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee. The film is directed by James Mangold. »
The Wolverine team of star Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold is reuniting for a third Wolverine spin-off movie. This will be the 8th time Hugh Jackman has played the popular mutant, after two solo films and five X-Men movies, including this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. This will be the longest any actor has played the same superhero on the big screen.
The Wolverine was a modest success in the States, bringing in $132 million from a $120 million budget. Its reception was lukewarm, and many doubted we'd ever see Hugh Jackman suit up as the troubled mutant Logan again after X-Men: Days of Future Past. But the latest standalone adventure has become an international success, pulling in over $280 million overseas for a total gross of $413 million worldwide. Because of this, 20th Century Fox has pushed Wolverine 3 into production.
Exclusive: Amazon Studios continues to attract big names for its pilots. Feature actor Gael García Bernal (Y Tu Mamá También, Amores Perros, Babel) has been tapped for the streaming service’s comedy pilot Mozart In The Jungle, written by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers. Based on the memoir by Blair Tindal, the project is all about sex, drugs and classical music and shows that what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what happens onstage. Mexico-born Garcia Bernal, repped by Wme, will play Gustavo, an enfant terrible who’s utterly devoted to his art as a conductor — but also to his image. Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine) is set to co-star opposite Shane Coffey in USA’s drama pilot The Novice, from Fox 21, Joe and Tony Gayton. It centers on Kyle (Coffey), a recent college graduate who is forced to move »

Hugh Jackman's second solo outing as the adamantium-clawed Logan may not have set the box-office alight domestically, with The Wolverine earning just $132.1 million during its North American run - the lowest of any X-Men movie to date. However, the James Mangold-directed solo sequel has enjoyed healthy returns internationally and, having opened strongly in China two weeks back, the film has surpassed the $407.7 million worldwide haul of Bryan Singer's X2: X-Men United this past weekend to become the second-highest grossing instalment in 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise behind 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.
The Wolverine is based upon Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's acclaimed 1981 miniseries and sees Logan heading to Japan at the behest of Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada), an old acquaintance who claims he can put an end to Logan's immortality. Also featuring in the cast are Will Yun Lee (Total Recall) as Kenuichio Harada, Brian Tee »

This summer's franchise sequel The Wolverine was originally supposed to feature Logan (Hugh Jackman) suiting up in his signature X-Men suit, but if you've seen the movie, you know they keep this Mutant superhero more down to Earth. We now have a look at one of the costumes that was being considered for The Wolverine, which consists of a classic yellow and black helmet and gloves, and would have tied into the costumes worn in X-Men: First Class.
Thanks to MovieWeb reader, Gil Brooks, we've got Legacy Effects digital modeler and sculptor Adam Ross, who has worked on such recent genre fare as Iron Man 3, Pacific Rim, RoboCop and Oblivion offering a look at the suit that would have been worn by Hugh Jackman had they decided to include his costume in the movie.
